I'm an active developer for LaTeX, most notably with the package siunitx for formatting numbers and units. In my day job I work as a chemist, and so you'll see I write a number of chemistry-related LaTeX packages. I'm also a member of the LaTeX3 Project, working on improving LaTeX with the eventual aim of producing LaTeX3. To keep people up to date with my TeX work and anything else TeX-related I see, I have a blog on TeX matters. I'm also keen on helping other TeX users, and so I try to watch the various places that people go for help. I'm also on the committee of the UK TeX Users' Group. So I pop up all over the TeX world!

For the avoidance of doubt, any code of mine that I publish on http://tex.stackexchange.com/ I hereby place in the public domain to the extent governable by law. Explicitly, I place it under the CC0

comment What is the easiest way to install additional packages when using texlive from the Fedora repos?
There are a lot of TeX packages out there, so the effort would be considerable. People who want the fine-grain control that tlmgr offers usually just install 'vanilla' TL, then can update, etc. themselves. People who don't want to do that usually are happy to take what their Linux package manager offers.

comment Cannot start AcrobatReader or open the document - Winshell
Obvious question, I know, but do you have Acrobat installed (or some other PDF viewer)? What do you see in Execute -> Program Calls for 'PDFView'?

With no MWE, this is 'too localised'.

comment How to represent this data as a table?
I'd be tempted to use the array package to switch to math mode (or dcolumns, rccol or siunitx), as the -` will otherwise be wrong :-(
